    #NYTF19 - Hasbro Marvel Offical Stock Images

    I think people are endeared to Luis because he's funny and has a unique manner of telling stories. I imagine a lot of people using him to humorous effect in photos because he is a very comedic character. and also i could see people doing photo series where he is inserted as a narrator of sorts. Plus the head sculpt. I could see making a Hank Pym fig but i feel like hasbro likes to focus on younger cast members when it comes to supporting characters (we didn't get Anthony Hopkins Odin, or Tilda Swinson Ancient One either)

    What's up with the X-Force wave

    The first vintage wave, aside from Wolverine and Spidey, seemed to pegwarm. Granted, it was pretty much all repaints of previously released figs. But really I'm not sure its much different from most ML waves where 1/3 to 2/3 of the figures end up available at a discount eventually (with the caveat that over time sometimes the price rises back up) Haven't really seen the 2nd vintage wave at all in stores aside from Gamestop (altho i heard some people found them in local comic stores), hard to gauge how its selling. On amazon most of the figures are priced above msrp, but the fact that hasbro pulse has the whole wave at msrp suggests that the figures aren't selling at a crazy pace (granted, hasbro pulse just went active what, last week) I'm not concerned, gave up trying to understand how stores make money off MLs a long time ago, as long as i can find who i want at msrp or less either in stores or online its all good. Excited more for the x-force wave but definitely want Silver Samurai from the vintage wave and will probably end up getting Dazzler at some point.
  3. We all knew it was coming, sad to see marvel netflix ending but the most annoying part is not getting resolution for Luke and Danny's stories. Not quitting netflix though, beyond the marvel series they seem to come out with new series i enjoy all the time (unlike the cable networks).. just in the last few weeks they've added Russian Doll and now Umbrella Academy. I do hope Hulu will at least do a PM/IF mini-series to wrap up the storylines from their respective 2nd seasons.
  4. Yeah the addition of the "classic" head moves this figure from a "maybe" purchase to a "must-have" for me. The only other comic IM fig i have is that GotG version from the movie wave, so this will be a huge upgrade! Anybody else think one of the 80th anniversary packs will have the fabled Stan Lee figure?
  5. Liking this 2-pack! Zendaya looks amazing and i never bought any homecoming spidey figs so he will be nice to have as well. However, its not my highest priority so i'm hoping i can grab it when target has a sale (or if it goes on clearance, eventually).

    to each his own, but honestly between vintage wave wolverine, tiger stripe wolverine, and old man logan I'm pretty much set for Logan figs, especially with Weapon X coming in the Caliban wave and presumably an x-force wolverine coming at some point. In contrast, this is the 1st classic Hulk figure that Hasbro has made so naturally people are going to view him as the highlight of the set. Nothing wrong with FA Wolverine but i think a lot of people will be looking to sell him after they buy the 2-pack ( I know i will)

    Top 10 new reveals for me: 10. Iron Spider - glad they are redoing this guy with the waldoes, gave my old version to my friend's kid in anticipation of a new version (phew!) 9. Silver Samurai - this one came out of nowhere for me, but gonna love posing him fighting every blade wielding fig I've got! Looks awesome!! 8. Scorpion - yess!! another classic spidey villain to add to the ranks, plus huge bendy wire tail (glad they learned from the lizard BAF's tail) 7. Alex Ross Cap - while i have cap wolf and can get by with him, he's not exactly great. this new Cap looks to be an improvement in every way. 6. Grandmaster - love the character, love Goldblum. Can't wait to pose him presiding over gladiatorial battles between both MLs and other figs 5. Korg - love the character, love big bruiser figures, love rock guys. Can't wait to have him fight Thing. 4. Shuri - fills a much needed gap in the mcu collection and she looks awesome!! Relieved she didn't turn out to be a BAF. 3. Nightcrawler- my most wanted x-men reveal, yes!!!! between this guy, prof x, and beast, feels like my x-team will have most of the members i want. 2. Alex Ross Thor - one of my favorite marvel characters, who was in much need of a 'classic' update. can't wait to retire my toybiz Thor. 1. HULK - FINALLY!!! What else can you say?? Also loving (in no particular order): Luis, MJ, Agent Carter, Juggs & Colossus, Boom-Boom, and Cannonball. What a Toy Fair!!!

    Target has the Kraven 2-pack and a Spider-Man Homecoming 2-pack up for pre-order. The Homecoming 2-pack comes with mcu Spidey and MJ (Zendaya). Not sure if this quite qualifies as toyfair news but i'm sure target timed these for this weekend deliberately. EDIT: I removed links to target as the 1st post of this thread advises us not to post links to other sites. there are also some reproductions of classic Kenner star wars figs up for pre-order too (Luke & Darth)

    That Grandmaster figure is a must-have, wow

    Eh, the wolf head still makes for a nice novelty Cap figure anyhow and it will be awhile before the new fig comes out so you can still get some use out of the Cap head in the meantime.
  12. With a better look, that Cap certainly appears to be an improvement over the vintage wave/wolf-cap version, in terms of having sculpted chain mail and also an improved head sculpt. I wonder if he is a solo figure or part of the ultimate riders line or what.
  13. Spotted the entire Black Panther wave at my local WM yesterday (regular price, no $5 deals alas)!! Grabbed Killmonger, Klaue and Ayo. I'm going to hold off on the other three until a sale or price reduction though, and may end up just getting the BAF piece for one of the panthers as i don't think i need two. They also had the entire Black Series Archive wave!

    Definitely want that Thor and Hulk!! Want a closer look at the Cap head sculpt but he looks like an improvement over the vintage wave/cap-wolf versions. The weird indents in iron man's helmet are a bit off-putting but i'll reserve judgement til i get a closer look. Not much interest in FA wolverine though.
  15. I'm pretty happy with the ML BAF Sandman but this guys looks good and is certainly the more affordable option at this point. Plus he's one of those select figs who will likely still look good posed with marvel legends, despite the different scale.
